Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here again on 2nd November and had dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. Very good value, but more importantly delicious home cooked food! I had the chicken and mushroom pie which was very good and started with the garlic scallops. Very good service and very warm welcome. I would heartly recommend the farmhouse breakfast too! Our room was immaculate and wonderfully warm!

This was our second visit to the Racehorse Inn and the welcome from Rob and Pat was just as warm as the first time. The food is excellent and tasty with a wide ranging menu which will suit most tastes. The rooms stylish but comfortable. It's not so easy to find places that are spotless but also take dogs. Rob and Pat genuinely welcome dogs, having a lovely Retriever of their own, Buddy. A place where you can truly relax with your pet sleeping happily at your feet while you tuck in to the good food and enjoy the company. It is set in a delightful lie of land - to walk from the door and to explore the unspolit Bodmin moor and the exhilarating North Coast. Dodie and Sam, Oxford.

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the Launceston area look no further than The Racehorse Inn. Robbie and Pat made us so welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
Our room was spotlessly clean, the food was excellent and the attention to detail much appreciated. We would also like to say thank you to the very attentive staff and the local clientel for making our stay so memorable. Hope Buddy is doing well. We will be back.

Took some friends from Spain who are well travelled including world cruises (so they know their food) for sunday lunch at the Inn. They were well impressed with the food and surroundings and want to bring their friends there too. We were very happy that the food was excellent as usual, never had a bad meal. Looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed here to visit relations who live hearby three years ago and have been in love with it ever since. We returned this June for our third visit and were given such a warm and friendly welcome. Our room is always so clean and very comfortable. It is equiped more like a 4 star hotel, complete with fluffy white dressing gowns! We had a delicious meal in the evening, all freshly cooked and very good value. We will look forward to returning to this delightful Inn and its lovely owners. Belinda and Michael

My husband and I have just returned from a long weekend in Launceston.
Not having visited this area before, we were unsure where to stay.
The Racehorse Inn was recommended to us by a local resident and my goodness did she advise us well.
The welcome we received on arrival was really very warm and friendly. When Pat showed us to our room, we were delighted. Very clean, spacious and comfortable with many personal touches. We had breakfast and dinner at the Inn, the food was exceptionally good quality and home cooked. The service and friendliness of the staff all added to our very enjoyable stay.
Fortunately we were there during the England/Sweden Euro 2012 football match and the atmosphere in the bar was great.
A big thank you to Pat and Robbie for making our stay so relaxed and comfortable. We will certainly stay again when we are in the area.
